How Outsourcing Your Logistics Can Save Your Business Money
For your business to gain a bigger profit, you need to do two things: keep your costs low and your sales high. And to do that effectively, you need to cut operational costs without sacrificing timeliness, quality, and efficiency on your business’ part.
One popular way of keeping operating costs low is by outsourcing. Our company has helped businesses that outsource their logistics to us save on costs to import and export products locally and internationally. As one of the reliable companies offering freight forwarding in the Philippines, we’ve helped our clients on the how-to’s, processes, and negotiations that result in lower costs on their end. These are just some of the ways we’ve helped our clients with their logistics costs.
Dealing with Negotiations
Most businesses do not have the experience, know-how, or network to negotiate with air or sea shippers. Our clients get lower prices because we’ve established a logistics network with various shippers that allows us to negotiate services and compare prices, ensuring you get the most cost-effective solution to your shipping needs.
During this step, our team will determine the best solution to your freight forwarding needs, but you’re in control of your cargo every step of the way.
Avoiding Delays and Lost Shipments
Delays in transporting goods can result in lost business or delays in operations, leading to added costs that can slowly add up against your business’ revenue. We’ve helped our clients avoid major delays by ensuring our network is filled with reliable carriers, leveraging our professional relationships with officials, and ensuring their products are shipped on-time.
Aside from delays, there are also cargo losses due to theft or mishandling that could cost your business. According to the International Union of Marine Insurance, shippers around the world lose cargo with an accumulated value of US$2.4 billion every year due to cargo mishandling, weather conditions, and piracy. While statistics suggest that you’re bound to experience lost cargo at least one point in your business, this can be avoided if you’re careful with which shipper and logistics company handles your cargo. And to ensure the low risk of cargo loss, we supervise your cargo throughout its shipping to provide you with regular updates.
Time Is Gold
Time is money in any business, and when you’re spending too much time managing your freight shipments, you could be losing hours which could have been used for something much more profitable for your business.
Did you know that small businesses spend around 500 hours each year managing their freight shipments? Around 42 percent of business owners claim they spend around two hours per shipment. During that time, business owners could have done something else more productive to increase sales.
As one of the reliable freight forwarding services in Manila, we can handle all your logistical needs at a fraction of the cost of doing the work yourself. Not only will you be saving more on operating costs, but you’ll also be saving time and the effort of going through a long process we’ve spent years doing.
